My husband and I stayed here for a week in August with our 3 children (4,10,14). We used it as a base to explore Co. Wicklow.
We had booked a 3 bedroom caravan.
First impressions of the site were not good - it stated it was 4 star - but it definitely was not the 4 star sites I am used to in France!! On entering the caravan I was impressed with the size but felt it was a little dated and in need of renovation / new curtains seat covers!! As you walk around the site you can se where they are updating it.
The site is basic (1980's style play park), launderette, pub with bistro, games facilities (football, golf, tennis, archery and shooting etc). It also has a little farm/pets corner.
As the week progressed my impression of the park rose - the children were having a great time playing out and going to the kids clubs (farm experience, craft, magician, video night, sports) which meant myself and husband could relax for an hr or 2.
The staff were helpful and the kids staff were great (you did have to pay extra for the kids cubs)
The location of the site was great for exploring Co Wicklow - and there was plenty to do in the surrounding area. If you have children a visit to Clara Lara fun park is a must. We did farms, and lots of walks, and of course a visit to Ballykissange;!!
There is no shop on site - but just across the road in the village there is one so easy to get basics. We did not eat out (other than Fitzpatrick's) so cant comment on the food on site (bistro and chip shop in village).
Other people have commented on the site being too busy - but we did not feel this. Yes there was a ready stream of people coming and going - but the noise levels were acceptable and i never felt crowded,. The noise on an evening was also good.
This park is a good example of not to take things at face value. It was a great park in beautiful surroundings, perfect for exploring the surrounding areas. I would recommend it to anyone going to this area.
